Piloti Announces the Launch of the Prototipo Driving Shoe Featuring The New Evolution Bottom Unit

Westlake Village, CA – September 7, 2006

– From the 24 Hours of Le Mans to a weekend tour along California’s Pacific Coast Highway, Piloti Driving Shoes are known for their exceptional comfort and the extra control and confidence they give you behind the wheel. With the release of the Prototipo and the new Evolution bottom unit, Piloti introduces a sleek new look for those who love to drive.

Building on the success of the popular Touring line, the Prototipo features the latest in athletic footwear construction techniques. A key innovation of the Prototipo’s Evolution bottom unit is a new internal midsole which creates the space and flexibility to design a sleeker, more streamlined profile.

Working with the new internal midsole is dual density heel cushioning, an innovative development of Piloti’s patented Roll Control™ heel that draws from the same design philosophy used in developing modern race car suspensions. Both the sleek design and advanced cushioning system allow for the precise pedal feel that Piloti drivers demand.

The Prototipo is constructed of a combination of high-quality suede and mesh to give drivers the easy fit and performance they have come to expect from Piloti. Six striking new colorways include a Corvette inspired black and yellow and a Cooper inspired British Racing Green.

As with all Piloti Driving Shoes, the Prototipo is reinforced on the lateral side of the right shoe and features Piloti’s patented Roll Control™ heel technology for extra control in heel-and-toe downshifting.
